Tekscan is the world's leading innovator and manufacturer of tactile pressure and force measurement solutions for test and measurement. From force measurement to pressure mapping, our sensing solutions provide unique data and insight to validate your technology, reduce costs, and enhance product design and quality for optimal results. Tekscan manufactures two distinct types of test & measurement analysis systems -- those used for measuring pressure, and those for measuring force. Depending on the type of data you wish to capture, one system option may serve your needs better than the other.

Still not sure which system type (pressure vs. force) you are looking for? See more system information below:
Pressure mapping systems utilize a matrix of sensing points to measure pressure distribution across the entire sensing array.
Force measurement systems measure load and force at a single sensing point.
